    There is one in downtown Waikiki that caters to the Japanese tourist crowd mostly, its generally over-priced, and full of inexperienced shooters.

    Koko head range is supposed to be pretty nice. And I believe the Pu'uloa Range, which goes to to 600m at least, and is where we do our annual quals, is sometimes open to the public as well. Contact Us

    If you come aboard island sometime in the next few months and need any help, fell free to contact me.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I get off the rock the summer, so I will be long gone before you get here, but if you need info, just ask.

    HKinNY, drugs are fairly rampant out here. Meth (ICE), marijuana, spice and salvia, and designer club drugs. But heroin, crack, coke, whatever else can also be had, fairly easily. There is a fairly large homeless population on Oahu that is mostly a result of the drug problems. I keep hearing a statistic that something like 3 or 4 out of every 10 drivers on Hawaii roads are intoxicated at any given time, and honestly, I wouldn't be surprised. But I also have yet to have someone show me where that statistic came from. But in short, drugs are pretty bad, prostitution is also rather prevalent around here, which is most likely inter-related with the drugs. The state of Hawaii makes their own anti-meth commercials, which would indicate to me that they see that drug as the biggest issue.

    Greetings from VA....via Germany. Lots of good information here...Recommend seeking additional training beyond the basics (after you've mastered the basics).
